Officially known as the "Alamo Literary Arts Maintenance Organization" (though no one calls it that) it is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit literary corporation recognized by the IRS since 1996 and located in Austin, TX. It describes itself as being "organized for the purposes of promoting the understanding and appreciation of the literary fields of fantasy, science fiction and horror, and to provide a forum for the free discussion of the ideas and concepts associated with these literary fields. In this role it acts to further the interests of the international community of active science fiction fans and the field's professional writers, editors and artists."

It ran LoneStarCon II and LoneStarCon 3, Smofcon 27 and InstaCon. It has also sponsored Nebula Weekends and a number of mystery conventions including Bouchercon.
